Qiu Moayad

.
Meet Qiu. Through a rather unusual life and upbringing: escaping a revolution in Iran as a child with basically only the clothes that he had on, a three year long battle with cancer as a teenager post Chernobyl, academic pursuit and soul searching in his twenties and complete economic collapse and financial resurrection in his thirties, Qiu gradually realized that nothing in life ‘just happens’ and that we always play and integral role in everything that we experience, even in situations we think we have no control over: such as revolutions or nuclear and economic meltdowns. Our own frequencies attract the very experiences that we either enjoy or loathe – it is through our way of thinking and paradigms that we lead the life that we are in. Through simple techniques we can alter the direction of our life’s journey where we ultimately can learn how to consciously create the life we want to live.
.
How do you serve the world?
I help people to realize that they are not mere ‘bouncy balls’ and victims of a stormy sea called life drifting about aimlessly until, by chance, they reach a safe haven once in a while. Once you realize that literally everything in life is energy and ultimately everyone and everything is connected and learn how to utilize this all encompassing net of cosmic power you will be able to consciously and proactively create a fulfilled, happy, and healthy life.
.
How do you take care of yourself while serving the world?
Due to the fact that I had cancer as a teenager I am very conscious about my physical, mental and spiritual health. From the simple routine check-ups, such as getting my blood work done and paying a visit to my dentist and dental hygienist, to working out practically daily: gym, yoga, and jogging and of course my daily meditation and visualization routines.
.
What is the biggest lesson you have learned through being of Service?
That we all carry the power of self healing in us. All it takes is learning how to tap into this power and unwavering faith that we can heal broken bones and broken relationships alike.
.
What and who inspires you?
All people who have broken the mold and changed the paradigm to create a better world. From ‘big names’ such as Nelson Mandela, Mohandas Gandhi, Buddha, Martin Luther King, Jr., to my very own great grandfather Haji Khodabakhsh who was one of the most kind, forgiving, progressive thinking, and generous human beings I have ever heard of: he forgave his son’s killer at a time (Iran of 1880’s) where he could have demanded that person to be executed, didn’t turn his back on the religion he had adopted – even when tremendously tortured – and helped the poor in his village.
.
If you had 6 months left to live, what would you do?
First thing I would do if finally tackle my fear of heights and jump off of an airplane (skydiving).
.
What is a favorite quote of yours? 
Keep it simple!

.
Why am I so happy to have Qiu over? Because we are cousins!
